Ten of us started out from the car park at Friday Street to cover the 6 to 7 mile route in the area of Leith Hill, ably led by Jenny Page. The weather proved the forecasters wrong yet again with blue skies appearing shortly after the walk rather than the predicted overcast conditions.
There were two refreshment stops, the first just under a mile before reaching the pub at Coldharbour (Jenny must have known the pub would have been shut) and the second at the top of Leith Hill from where there were good views across the Weald to the South Downs and beyond. A very slight haze prevented us from seeing the sea through one of the gaps in the South Downs.
Having picked up an additional SWSW member at the top of Leith Hill we proceeded back to the Stephan Langton pub where all but two of us decided that a visit was an essential part of the walk. The attached photo’s show the queue at the Leith Hill food bar, views over the Weald with some SWSW members in the foreground and the group hightailing it off to the pub Thanks go to Jenny for leading such an enjoyable walk.
